It was standing room only at Nelson Middle School Tuesday night, where more than 600 opponents of a proposed Dominion Power pipeline were packed into the auditorium to hear Dominion make a presentation to county supervisors. Before the meeting began, dozens stood in front of the school armed with signs and blue “No pipeline” tee-shirts. Dominion spokesperson Chet Wade was one of the speakers. He says he is more than familiar with concerns over whether the 550 mile project should run through Nelson County at all, but says the proposed route protects the areas environment, land use and lifestyle. If built, construction would begin in 2017. Opponents have expressed dissatisfaction with meeting including questions from only the supervisors, but the multi-step process would include multiple open houses where residents and landowners would be able to talk with company representatives one-on-one. A final date has yet to be set, but Dominion plans to hold its first open house in mid-September.
